I really had no idea Kelowna had so many great local coffee shops and bakeries to chose from until I really started to look. Bliss Bakery has been a favourite of ours since we first moved here, but I realized I have never share the love!
Bliss Bakery has a four locations to visit (plus a fifth location where they make all the food for the retail location) so if you don't want to venture into downtown Kelowna to check out this amazing option, no problem - you can visit them in West Kelowna or Peachland.
We usually head to the location on Ellis, but recently stopped in for a coffee and treat on a Sunday morning at the Bernard location. It's just steps from the lake, so was the perfect stop for us after a winter lakeside walk.
Both the Bernard and Ellis locations have a warm and cozy feel to them, with lots of seating (as far as coffee shops/bakeries go). We have never been disappointed with the treats that we have chosen, and so far each time we've picked something new so we don't have favourites to share with you yet .... there are just so many things to try that it is too soon to pick a favourite. I can recommend the peanut butter chocolate chunk cookie though (in case you are stumped and need help choosing!).
We loved the atmosphere of the Bernard location, it has several different areas to it - the front/middle with standard tables and chairs - prefect for a quick bite. The back area has a collection of comfortable arm chairs and a relaxed coffee house feel which would be great for catching up with friends over a coffee. They also have another room tucked off to the side that can be reserved for meetings or gatherings which I think is a really great idea - Kelowna is really lacking in meeting places for small groups so think this will get a lot of use!
